The marks of the Cross - A Good Memory
 
"We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in the LORD Jesus Christ."
- 1 Thes. 1:2-6,7
 
Paul commended the Christians in Thessalonica for following the LORD, even though they suffered hardships.
 
One of the great distinctive marks of the Christian faith and theology is the backward look. Theology is sensitively aware of the past. One of the chief words in the Bible is the word "remember" It is a dynamic word. It incites the memory until remembrance becomes an imperative for action. Our entire faith is summed up in three imperatives, "believe, remember, and love," One of the most sacred commands in Scripture reads; "This do in remembrance of me."

We look back and see Him in the Sacred Record. We remember His words and His deeds. All around Him, before and after Him, are faces in which the light of the Eternal shines and voices in which the wisdom of heaven speaks. The Christ behind us in history becomes the Christ with us and the Christ before us.
 
Christian friends, are you facing difficult, faith-stretching circumstances today? Your joyful obedience to God can be an encouraging example to others.
 
Joyfully following Jesus the LORD
And trusting His lead every day
Makes us examples that others can see
To follow when trials come their way.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY -  A godly example is worth more than a thousand words.
